Recently I’ve got acquainted with talented artist Svetlana Pochechueva who works with porcelain. I’ve already heard about her, because she is almost one in Russia who is engaged in painting of porcelain thimbles. Though we
have some porcelain thimbles of other artists, but Svetlana is engaged in painting of porcelain thimbles seriously. Her favourite themes are "Russian cheap popular print", "Russian tales", "Patterns", "Ornamental patterns".
Svetlana Pochechueva was born in Leningrad (St. Petersburg). In 1977 she graduated from specialized college at Leningrad porcelain factory (Lomonosov porcelain factory) and after it she worked as a painter of unique painting workshops. She took lessons from L.S.Lobankova, the student and assistant of famous artist Aleksey Vorobievsky, according to his models a lot of articles were made. In 1995 Svetlana graduated from the University of St. Petersburg’s history, wrote her report "Person of Vorobievsky — the artist of porcelain". Svetlana also worked at the "Porcelain" factory, were in 1994-1996 porcelain boards with her pictures of ships in Russian style were made, then she was a chief artist of private enterprise "Bell". The works of Svetlana have meritorious attention of collectors. For example, the teapot with her painting is the article of the teapots’ collection collected by Consul of South African Republic. Svetlana took part in such exhibits as "Horn of plenty" in 1999 in Moscow, exhibits of Amateur Folk Arts House in September 2000. Some works of this painter were exhibited in France in 1999 during Christmas week and in Moscow in 1999-2000. Porcelain thimbles made by Svetlana were exhibited in Finland in September 2000 when Finland got acquainted with St. Petersburg’s painters.
Svetlana Pochechueva is a member of Russian Art Culture Union (St. Petersburg).
